A resident who made several costly renovations to his Greenridge Drive home without acquiring the necessary building and safety permits was denied a last-ditch effort to keep his home office Monday night, when the La Cañada Flintridge City Council adopted a resolution dictating the return of the home to its pre-existing condition. The resolution was the result of a March 3 appeal hearing held at the last council meeting, in which members discussed which parts of homeowner Shaker Eissa's years-long illegal renovations would be allowable and which would have to be undone.

Letters to the Editor Texas is looking good to him now Even though I dutifully go twice a year, I really dislike going to the dentist. No matter what, even if I don’t have any work done, I end up having to pay out of pocket even though I have insurance. The same applies to living in La Cañada. Despite my gigantic property tax bill, income tax, gas tax, phone tax, 10% on everything I buy, tax on my savings — it’s never enough. No matter how much I pay, the government hand is always waiting.

We’ve heard about some mountain lion sightings in our neighborhoods, which no longer surprise us because it seems those visits have escalated in the past few years. The most recent notice was a message, dated Sept. 8, taped to a wall at the Verdugo Hills Pharmacy advising visitors that one of the big cats had been spotted in the hills behind the hospital. With the Station fire having made a dramatic change to the habitat in the Angeles National Forest, animals who survived, including predators, are on the move.

Poinsettias, amaryllis, and Christmas cactus are some of the plants you're likely to have around the home or office this season. The temptation is to think of them as disposable decorations, but with a little TLC, you can keep these living symbols of the holidays around for months or years. That beautiful plant you received as a gift or bought at the store probably has its container swathed in festive watertight wrapping of red, gold, green, or silver. The first thing to do is to cut a hole in the bottom of the wrapper for easy draining - nothing kills most plants faster than leaving their roots in standing water day after day. Keep in mind that the air inside most homes this time of year is arid from heaters and fireplaces.
